Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Abandoned Love  Bob Dylan

[G]My heart i[Cadd9]s telling [D]me, I love you [G]still


[G]I can see [D/F#]the turning of the[Em] key
I've been[C] deceived b[C/B]y the clown inside of [D]me
I[Bm] thought that he wa[Bm7]s righteous but he's v[C]ain
[G]Somethi[Cadd9]ng's telling me,[D] I wear the ball and cha[G]in

(same chords throughout)
[G]My patron s[D/F#]aint is a-fighting with [Em]a ghost
He's alwa[C]ys off some[C/B]where when I need him [D]most
[Bm]The Spanish moon is[Bm7] rising on the hill   [C]
[G]But som[Cadd9]ething's telling[D] me, I love you still   [G]

[G]I come back t[D/F#]o the town from th[Em]e flaming ruins
But when [C]I see you i[C/B]n the street I begin t[D]o swoon
[Bm]I love to see you d[Bm7]ress before the mirror[C]
[G]Won't y[Cadd9]ou let me in you[D]r room one time, before [G]I finally disappear

[G]Everybody'[D/F#]s wearing a disgui[Em]se
To hide w[C]hat they've[C/B] got left behind their[D] eyes
[Bm]But me I can't cove[Bm7]r what I am           [C]
[G]Whereve[Cadd9]r their children[D] go, I'll follow them   [G]
[G]I'm marchi[D/F#]ng the parade of l[Em]iberty
But a[C]s long as I[C/B] love you I'm not free[D]
[Bm]How long must I suf[Bm7]fer such abuse        [C]
[G]Won't y[Cadd9]ou let me see yo[D]u smile, before I turn y[G]ou loose
[G]I've given[D/F#] up the game I've [Em]got to leave
The [C]pot of gold i[C/B]s only make believe   [D]
[Bm]The treasure can't [Bm7]be found by men who se[C]arch
[G]Who's g[Cadd9]ods are dead and[D] whose queens are in the[G] church
[G]We sat in [D/F#]an empty theater a[Em]nd we kissed
I asked y[C]ou please t[C/B]o cross me off your li[D]st
[Bm]My head tells me it[Bm7]'s time to make a chan[C]ge
[G]But my [Cadd9]heart is telling[D] me, I love you but you'[G]re strange
(Harmonica solo, same chords)

[G]So one mor[D/F#]e time at midnight[Em] near the wall
Take o[C]ff your hea[C/B]vy makeup and your sha[D]wl
[Bm]Won't you descend f[Bm7]rom the throne from wh[C]ence you sit
[G]And let[Cadd9] me feel your lo[D]ve one more time, before[G] I finally abandon it
